    2019 schedules

    Those AAA schools from Charleston don't have very many openings on their schedules due to MSAC (conference) scheduling. Don't think Graham would ever look to Kentucky for an opponent, maybe NE TN again, though. I'd like to get Mt. Airy, or any other NC team, on the schedule "just because"...

    Will be a trusted source if it happens...but I typically trust my sources...
  3. Grundy wins another team title and Graham's Fritz brothers both win State Titles in their weight class.

    Hearing things aren't all sugar plums and fairy tales in DC...wouldn't be surprised if someone goes elsewhere...hard to be the superstar when the other superstar won't pass you the ball... Regardless, someone might end up getting a fine ball player via "free agency"...

    Region D Tournaments

    Fact is, Graham was due a bad game...they've had 3 or 4 of those this year. Union beat JSB three times this season by 4 in 2OT at JSB, by 6 at home, and by 10 in the tournament to claim 3rd place in the M7. Let us take a look at the rest of the games... Union beat Virginia High by 18...Graham beat V-High twice this season by an average of 29 pts/game. Central beat Richlands by 15...Graham beat Richlands three times this season by an average of 23.7 pts/game. Gate City beat Lebanon by 14...Graham beat Lebanon twice this season by an average of 22.7 pts/game (closest of the SWD opponents). All I'm saying is don't count chickens before they hatch...looks like just about anyone could finish 2nd in the Region at this point. Except for Central, since they play GC in the Region Semis...we all know Gate City be the Region Champions...

    Radford only beat Graham by 22 when they played earlier this season...can I get that +25 on that game for $100?

    Old System vs New System

    Every school in WV that plays basketball makes the tournament. Sectionals battle it out with winners going to region, region winners and runner-ups make it to the final 8 in Charleston. VA has pretty much taken that path for postseason basketball.

    His father used to...you'd be surprised at the number of coaches that do read this board though...

    John, I've put up with enough of that guys BS. He has gotten the boot for other things and continues to create new names...this was his 8th for everyone at home keeping score. I'll continue to pull the plug on that joker as long as I continue to pay the bills around here. If you have a problem with that, then I suggest you show yourself the door.

    And, I'm banning myself for one month for posting this... http://www.maxpreps.com/news/-T4dXei0e0q73VOZjsIelw/2018-maxpreps-high-school-freshman-all-american-football-team-.htm MaxPreps 2018 Freshmen All-American Team First Team Offense QB – Gunner Stockton, Rabun County (Tiger, Ga.) The Peach State's next great signal caller, Stockton threw for 2,917 yards and 34 touchdowns. He also rushed for 709 yards and 17 more scores. QB – Chad Mascoe Jr., Thomasville (Ga.) Threw for 1,937 yards and 21 touchdowns while rushing 60 times for 312 yards and six scores, drawing comparisons to a young Cam Newton. RB – Terrance Gibbs, Master's Academy (Oviedo, Fla.) A physical specimen at 6-1, 185, Gibbs topped the 1,500-yard mark and scored 22 touchdowns. RB – Raleek Brown, Edison (Stockton, Calif.) One of the more exciting players in the Stockton-Modesto area, Brown reeled off 1,688 yards and scored 28 times. He added 31 catches for 741 yards. RB – Isaiah Broadway, Hebron (Carrollton, Texas) "Bam Bam" battered opposing defenses, en route to district Newcomer of the Year honors. WR – Luther Burden, Cardinal Ritter College Prep (St. Louis) With 48 catches for 1,191 yards and 13 touchdowns, Burden is the definition of a home-run threat. With the gridiron season finished, Burden heads to the hardwood, where he might be even more talented. WR – Kevin Green Jr., Alemany (Mission Hills, Calif.) Notched 77 catches for 854 yard and six scores for Alemany. According 247Sports, he already has an offer from Oregon. WR – Ismael Zamor, Everett (Mass.) For one of Massachusetts' top programs, Zamor emerged as one of the top young talents in New England, lining up at numerous positions and earning a Michigan offer in the process. OL – Jaheim Oatis, Columbia (Miss.) Also an impressive basketball and baseball player, Oatis saw varsity action in the trenches as an eighth-grader, a testament to his incredible physical prowess. He has already landed offers from Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Mississippi State. OL – Kiyanuta Goodwin, Holy Cross (Louisville, Ky.) The ballyhooed middle-school phenom shed 80 pounds heading into ninth grade, making him a factor immediately on the Holy Cross varsity line. OL – Dave Iuli, Puyallup (Wash.) Iuli was an absolute monster for state semifinalists Puyallup. Washington has produced numerous blue-chip lineman through the years, and Iuli has the chance to be every bit as good as any of them. OL – Brody Meadows, Graham (Bluefield, Va.) An all-district selection, Meadows helped Graham capture a Class 2 state title, the program's first since 1995. OL – KJ Miles, St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, N.J.) Though his future is likely on the defensive side of the ball, Miles, who already holds offers from Michigan and North Carolina, was a key figure on the St. Peter's Prep offensive line. TE – Jack Nickel, Milton (Milton, Ga.) Nickel was a key contributor to state champion Milton, where he also lined up at fullback. AP – Chase Harrison, Centerville (Ohio) For the storied Ohio program, Harrison stepped into the starting quarterback role and tossed for 1,649 yards and 12 touchdowns. First Team Defense DL – Curtis Neal, Hough (Cornelius, N.C.) At 6-3, 305 pounds, Neal is a mountain of a young man, and will be drawing double teams for years to come. DL – Kaveon Freshwater, Northeastern (Elizabeth City, N.C.) Accounted for 76 tackles and 15 sacks for a 14-1 Northeastern team. DL – Richard Thomas, American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.) Thomas knifed his way through opposing offensive lines to the tune of 13 sacks. DL – Tyler Booker, Bergen Catholic (Oradell, N.J.) A massive presence up front for one of New Jersey's top teams, Booker had three tackles in Bergen Catholic's early season upset over Grayson (Loganville, Ga.). LB – Dishawn Misa, Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wash.) For state champ Crusaders, Misa tallied 39 tackles and added a blocked punt. LB – Dasan McCullough, Blue Valley North (Overland Park, Kan.) The son of former NFL player (and current Kansas City Chiefs assistant) Deland McCullough, Dasan already towers over his dad and could be an FBS recruit at multiple positions. LB – Aubrey Smith, Central Gwinnett (Lawrenceville, Ga.) The Black Knights have produced some blue-chip recruits and Smith, a 6-3, 221-pound specimen, seems to fit the mold. LB – Jeremiah Alexander, Thompson (Alabaster, Ala.) In Alabama's ultra-competitive Class 7A, Alexander earned All-State honors, finishing with 74 tackles. LB – Tyler Martin, Buckingham Browne & Nichols (Cambridge, Mass.) After leading the team in tackles as an eighth-grader, Martin delivered once more as a freshman. DB – Mike Jackson, Palmetto (Miami) A playmaker for Palmetto, he made big plays on both defense and special teams. DB – Domani Jackson, Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) A breakthrough player in the secondary for the CIF Open Division state champs Mater Dei, he recorded two interceptions and three pass breakups. DB – Isaiah Horton, Ensworth (Nashville, Tenn.) A starter for one of the state's top programs, he also saw action at wide receiver and has now transitioned to the hardwood. DB – Deyon Bouie, Bainbridge (Ga.) An all-region pick, he was responsible for 26 tackles, five interceptions and 12 pass breakups. AP – Seven Warren, Hampton Roads Academy (Newport News, Va.) He's drawn comparisons to Chiefs' defensive tackle, and fellow "757" native Derrick Nnadi. The 6-4 300 pounder made 71 tackles and earned All-State honorable mention. Second Team Offense QB – AJ Duffy, Rancho Verde (Moreno Valley, Calif.) It was a dominant season for the coach's son who carved up opposing defenses to the tune of 2,984 yards and 40 touchdowns. QB – Brady Allen, Gibson Southern (Fort Branch, Ind.) The 6-5 gunslinger threw for 2,438 yards and 29 touchdowns against four interceptions, helping the Titans to a 9-3 finish. RB – Jaydn Ott, Norco (Calif.) Topped the 1,000-yard mark for the 9-3 Cougars, while adding six catches for 74 yards and another score. RB – Kaytron Allen, Norview (Norfolk, Va.) Made a name for himself with 329 yards and four touchdowns against state power Lake Taylor (Norfolk). On the season, he accumulated 1,421 yards and 16 scores. RB – Arlen Harris Jr., Lutheran (St. Peters, Mo.) Coach's son found the end zone 22 times on 1,280 yards, while adding a pick-six on defense. WR – Tyrone Taylor, Rainier Beach (Seattle) Taylor, simply put, is one of the fastest players in America. As Washington continues to become a recruiting hotspot, Taylor will carry the torch. WR – Larry Turner-Gooden, Calabasas (Calif.) Turner-Gooden showed glimpses all over the field, lining up at wide receiver, defensive back, punt returner and kick returner. WR – Taylor Groves, East Robertson (Cross Plains, Tenn.) The sky is the limit for the 6-3 Groves, who caught eight touchdowns and also spent time at running back. TE – Jake Johnson, Oconee County (Watkinsville, Ga.) After missing most of the season with a broken foot, Johnson, whose father Brad played quarterback and won a Super Bowl in the NFL, closed the season by catching a touchdown pass from brother Max, an LSU commit. OL – E'Marion Harris, Robinson (Little Rock, Ark.) A starter out of the gate, Harris showed the promise that led to an early offer from Alabama. OL – AJ Vaipulu, Centennial (Corona, Calif.) Not only started for mighty Centennial, a high school power, he played the key position of left tackle for one of the country's best programs. OL – Julian Armella, St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) Worked his weigh into the starting lineup and more than held his own for Broward County power St. Thomas Aquinas. OL – Lucas Taylor, Ocean Springs (Miss.) Taylor was tasked with protecting the quarterback's blindside, using his 6-5 frame to line up at left tackle. OL – Kameron Dewberry, Atascocita (Humble, Texas) For Class 6A Atascocita, which finished 11-2, Dewberry saw significant time at tackle. He'll be one of the biggest recruits in the Lone Star State in coming years. AP – Shaleak Knotts, Monroe (Monroe, N.C.) The 6-2 WR/FS saw action on special teams. As a receiver, he caught 10 touchdowns. Second Team Defense DL – Joe Strickland, Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory (Indianapolis) Record 19 tackles and swatted down three passes. He projects to be one of the more coveted recruits from the Hoosier State. DL – Justice Finkley, Hewitt-Trussville (Trussville, Ala.) While he saw regular work at defensive end and played special teams, the best is yet to come for Finkley, who's already 6-2, 225. DL – Tyre West, Tift County (Tifton, Ga.) A gifted edge-rushed and totaled six sacks and five tackles for loss. DL – Khurtiss Perry, Park Crossing (Montgomery, Ala.) In the season opener, Perry immediately established his presence, recording six tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. LB – Walker Polk, Coppell (Texas) It's rare for any freshmen to contribute for Texas Class 6A powers like Coppell, especially at physically demanding positions like linebacker. Polk thrived, with a team high 116 tackles. LB – Shawn Murphy, Stonewall Jackson (Manassas, Va.) The team's leading tackler this fall, Murphy will be a sought-after recruit before his time is up. LB – Malaki Te'o, JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) Playing in the nation's premier league, Te'o more than held his own. He was responsible for 66 tackles and four quarterback hurries. LB – Tripp Williams, Philip Simmons (Charleston, S.C.) The 6-2, 210 pounder looks like a linebacker at the next level, but also saw action behind center for Simmons. LB – Jaishawn Barham, DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.) The rangy Barham took advantage of a growth spurt entering high school and saw varsity action for national power DeMatha. DB – Amari Clark, Woodrow Wilson (Camden, N.J.) With his size (6-1, 195), Clark thrived at safety before moving up to play linebacker. He hails from the same school as former blue-chip defensive back Antwine Perez. DB – Cristian Driver, Liberty Christian (Argyle, Texas) The son of former NFL receiver Donald Driver, Cristian helped Liberty Christian to an 8-5 season and a berth in the state state semifinals. DB – Oakie Salave'a, Leone (Pago Pago, American Samoa) Salave'a, whose uncle Joseph spent more than a decade in the NFL as a defensive tackle, has the size (6-3, 180) and pedigree to be a big-time player from American Samoa. He already has an offer from Hawaii. DB – Jaeden Gould, Bergen Catholic (Oradell, N.J.) A member of the Crusaders' impressive young nucleus, Gould made 24 tackles and an interception. AP – Jaheim Singletary, Lee (Jacksonville, Fla.) An all-area honorable mention selection, Singletary had seven picks and six pass breakups for Class 7A Lee. *Stephen Spiewak is national football editor emeritus at MaxPreps and has selected the MaxPreps Freshman All-American Team since 2010.
